M is for Monday

What is it about Monday that makes it so, well, Monday?

Linking up with Carissa to share some Miscellany...

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1) After some storming overnight, the weather is really beautiful today. A little extra wind but that just reminds me of Oklahoma.

2) Today marks the eighth  month that we have been without a job. Eight months of living with the in-laws. We are so very tired. We try to stay positive but each day that passes makes it more difficult.

3) Went to a wonderful softball tournament this weekend. We won, so of course that made it all better. Played against the hosting team and it was a nail biter. Too much fun!

4) Teens and attitudes. Yuk. Let me say it again just to feel better... Yuk. Actually this whole experience has been neat in the way that I see the girls more often BUT they are beginning to get on each other's nerves. And that gets on mine. If you have or have had teens, any advice would be appreciated!

Praying the job comes soon. I know all too well about this. My husband is still unemployed (with the exception of some short-term work) and we are nearing two years.

I do have teens with attitude. I constantly have to remind them of the rules. I think alot of it is hormones, plus they are wanting their independence. Keep reminding them who's boss and don't be afraid to revoke privileges (like phones, car keys,etc.) to bring them back around.

Praying for the job situation, hope it will be resolved soon and in a bigger way than we can even imagine! God' always provides (too bad He doesn't give us a heads up on the time line!)

Whenever I post a comment, it comes back to me via e-mail, saying it was rejected. I'll check back later to see if it worked this time. :-)

Same comment as Cranberry Morning...I comment each time, but I don't think it gets to ya! Praying, praying, praying!!! Teens who complain are gaining their they really have to gain it that way? Really?! It's a stage, don't let it become a habit...for every complaint about one another, I make my kids find something nice to say to each other...they don't necessarily like it, but I've found they complain less...probably so that they don't have to say anything nice about each other, lol...either way, less negativity I have to deal with ;)

Oh, how funny...I didn't read Barbie's comment until after I'd written mine...must be true of teens gaining their independence if two of us said it, lol!
